“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
— E. B. White

If Your Birthday is July 11
(The Day of the Unsolicited Opinion) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You’ve been through many changes the past couple of years, and you’re feeling like it’s about time your life settled down. You’re ready for a break; the recent years have been intense. But your experiences have opened a door, and you want to keep that door open — even if you have to invite in a little chaos. That’s the feedstock of creativity.
Written in the Planets
What promises have you made to others, and what promises have you made to yourself? When you think about that, do you consider the concept of a ‘soul contract’ — that is, your soul’s intention for incarnation in this lifetime and its highest path or purpose? Today Venus forms a T-square with Orcus in Virgo and Nessus in Pisces. Nessus represents an opportunity to ‘stop the buck’ on some sort of negative (even abusive) pattern, often something familial. Orcus, named after the punisher of broken promises, represents keeping oaths and being true to oneself. Venus in Gemini can feel both sides putting on the pressure, yet they may not be equal. Any ‘promise’ (explicit or implied) that hurts you in the bargain may not be one the gods — or your soul — expects you to honor.
I’ve now completed your Cancer reading, which is infused with the energy of the Full Moon conjunct Pluto. I describe this in detail, taking it back to the beginning of Pluto in Capricorn. As the reading developed organically, it built up an intensity I was not expecting, ultimately describing the relationship between you and the very wide world that surrounds you.
The reading consists of two, 35-minute downloadable sessions. They can also be played on any device, or added to iTunes.
The reading is still available at the pre-order price of $44. You will get instant access. This reading will be followed by a tarot card reading sometime in the next week to month. Here is an audio sample.
